Musto Skiff

Tips from the Top

Inlands top tips

For good speed :

With the light winds below trapezing conditions, use the cunningham and no gnav to stop the leach hooking
Keep your weight forward and keep the boat flat and move smoothly to maintain the glide of the boat.

Tactics :

In light shifty conditions you need to keep your head out of the boat to stay on the right side of the course. I regularly compare my angle to the mark, and other boats to check I am on the best tack, and for judging the lay line.
Look to see were the most pressure is, and the angle of the front of the gust to see if its a lift or header.
Pre-Start I try to get in phase with the wind, are the gusts mainly form the left or right or equal every X minutes.
Which way paid last time? if the wind pattern is the same it will pay again.
Get a good start!
